Chirping noises. Could be the same problem. I had to replace my idler pulley, that was the pulley that the fan belt rides on. The bearing used to chirp before it went bad. When it warms up, well, it could just be your fan belt is not tight enough.

The chirping could be the water pump too.

OK Here is old fashion way of finding a noise and where it is. You can use a hose, wooden dowel or a long screw driver. Put one end of your listening device to your engine close to where you think the noise is coming from ( watch for moving parts). Listen on the other end. When you hear the noise louder at one point you have found your part or location of said sound. This takes out the guessing which part is bad. Saves you time and money.

Now yes the have a stethoscope that is made for doing the something. But I'm cheap if I have something in hand why buy something that will work.

I had the same problem and mine was the alternator pulley which was sitting slightly too far forward. You could try isolating the noise by individually spraying the pulleys with T9 untill it stops, when it does that is the pulley that is making the noise.
